Mark Hamill has told a student that he refused to retaliate against a bully because "it is not the Jedi way" that the Force will always be with him.
Aiden Vasquez, 10, was hospitalized after being beaten by one of his classmates at Two Bunch Palms Elementary School in Desert Hot Springs, California.
Aiden, who said "he felt in his soul that he should not defend himself", needed stitches on his eye after the test.
